New record soon

Just wanted to let y'all know that my band and I are going into the studio in July to record the new T-Wi record. Pressure is a necessity, and when one is one own's boss, then sometimes something as simple as a date can kick one's boot-ay into gear.

It's going to be a proper band record again. Live in da studio, real drums (when not the tea crate), loud guitars (where appropriate). Any special instrument requests? Last record I had a singing saw and a santoor. Lemme know if you've got a hankering for hurdy gurdy or a good ol' daxophone. I'll do what I can to get in touch with Hans Reichel.



So, got back to Germany the other day and am slowly settling in. The time in America was splendid. The two weeks of tour went smashingly. Thanks to Jason Harrod for driving and playing with me. I'm also very grateful to all you wonderful folks who took photos and filmed us. Always nice to have those memories! And nice to be able to show the unfortunate fans who live too far away from the places I played. There's even more of it to come. Until I manage to get it up here, my facebook sites are the most reliable source. Check here and here.

The other two weeks flew by. Family time in Austin, Texas - it's the place to be!

The shows must go on, as they say, and Tim and I will be playing one in Gera @ Szenario as part of the Geraer Songtage. Can't wait to see y'all!


America, the beautiful

People, I'm stateside! Jason Harrod and I are out the door on our way to Rochester, NY. Check dates for new shows - added Nashville! Deleted Springfield, unfortunately.

Thanks to everyone who's been writing me. I love to hear from you!


Shows this weekend, new tees and bags on the way

I'll be playing Darmstadt and Karlsruhe this weekend - more details on the "dates" page.

A kind soul at my Magdeburg show a few weeks ago offered to whip up some t-shirts and bags with my logo, and with any luck, I'll have them in time for my shows this weekend. So exciting! I've not made shirts in, oh, way too long to say it here.

Looking forward to all y'all! Tell your friends who live in the area!


New Dates, USA Tour

New year, new shows. I just put up a bunch of new dates, and even more are in the works as I type. Takin' the Wileyrock to new corners of Germany this year (Meppen, Saarburg/Kastel, even Sylt!), and I'll even be playing three shows with a backing band from Lüneburg, featuring Lars "Plog-to-the-schties" Plogschties on drums, as part of the "1st Class Sessions".

But the big news is the tour in America with the German duo Sea & Air (Daniel Benjamin & Eleni). We've known each other for a long time and just happen to want to tour the states at the same time, so we've joined forces to conquer at least selected parts of the upper left-hand corner (including Canada), plus Texas. Those dates are still coming in, and I'm happy to anounce that a small chunk of the shows will be with my dear friend Jason Harrod.

So, check ze dates, visit me on FacebookMyspace or Bandcamp and spread the word, ya know?
